I haven't tried it myself, but you might want to look into the onfocus tooltips extension. Please let us know how that works for you.

I plan on trying it myself, and will post my findings on how well it works for me when I do.

After playing around with the tooltips extension this morning, I finally remembered that I had used it a while back but taken it down from my site because it doesn't work properly in Firefox. It works great with Internet Explorer and words wraps just as you would expect. With Firefox, long text just doesn't display the entire text.
